Liens. We filed 4 liens in November 2018 with the Treasurer. We received payment on one of those accounts.

We are working with Jennifer Lanckriet to collect back utility debt at the closings of property sales. (We closed one account's debt.)

The clerks office will work into whether we can go through collections and/or affect a person's credit rating. Also, we need to look at raising the application fee on the utilities. The board suggested a 2 month utility deposit.

Jeanie asked if we needed file cabinets. We need lockable file cabinets.

413 Second Street:A letter was sent to the property owner regarding the zoning of the property.

Tractor Bid:

We received 1 bid for the S10 pick-up  and 2 bids for the Tractor.

Credit Card:

Contract Limit - making the person whose name is on the card is responsible. Beth and Heather have cards right now. When do we need authorization. And what is the limit without authorization. Limit - $500 without prior authorization. The board also okayed Richard to have a credit card with the same limits. He will also need to sign a contract. 

Four Day Work Week:

Heather and Beth can work four days a week as needed, while getting things in order. The board felt this was a reasonable request.

 

Old Business:

Josh Skelton:Dickenson Surveyors - Josh Skelton of Dickenson's Survey brought a bid for the creation of a base map of the town boundaries which will show the deeded tracts and zoning.  Heather explained that Elements engineering will do a full on scanning of all of our maps. Heather felt that a contractors, (Dickenson and Elements) should sign agreements to share information and work together to avoid overlap. Mr. Skeleton agreed. It was clarified that Element Engineering would be mapping out the infrastructure. Mr. Skelton stated that at the current time the city limits are unclear. Members of the Dickinson's office felt that the best solution would be sign an ordinance vacating all of the city limits and immediately vote in and ordinance creating the city limits. The town attorney would need to be brought into the discussion. Josh felt that would be the cleanest way to establish a boundary without a full title search.
